Rakim In Columbus Tonight

YouTube Preview Image

I used to shoplift  magazines from Little Professor Bookstore  that debated this song as Existentialism’s first arrival into Hip Hop. So then I started stealing books with Existentialism in the title.

Never seen Rakim live.  Blueprint and Illogic open for him  tonight @ Alrosa Villa.

Pretty excited.

No Scribble Jam in 2009

Earlier this week, midwest hip hop saint, Kevin Beacham sent out this email announcing the end of Scribble Jam. Scribble was a Hip Hop festival in Cincy.

Later this week I might post highlights that include me painting at Scribble, Eminem, MF Doom, Sage Francis, Meta4ce, Brand Nubian, RJD2,Def Jux,Atmosphere, Anticon, Blueprint and disparging comments about the females that the so-called “Queen City” has to offer.

BUt until then…here is what Mr. Beacham had to say.

Scribble Jam 1996-2008

First off, let me just say thank you to everyone who has been reaching out about Scribble ’09. Sorry for putting you on hold, but we had a lot of things to consider. This letter explains it all. Sorry it’s a bit long but I wanted to really try to capture the full situation. If you just want the details without the theatrics, skip to the last two paragraphs J

The Final So What Wednesday

So What Wednesday, the weekly Hip Hop night at Bourbon Street will be coming to a close tonight.
Here are DJ Detox’s parting words.(the night was named after Daymon Dodson aka So What)

Rest In Peace Daymon Dodson Racist Joe So What!

The night’s been goin on for 2+ years now thanks to the support from the people of Columbus. Both from the many people that knew Daymon and some who didn’t. When it comes down to it, I feel like Big Daymon would have wanted it this way. Holding down a weekly for 2years in Columbus is no easy feat and i feel like all in all its been a successfull night. Better to go out on a high note than to burn out, Nahmean?

Big thanks to the many cats that have been helping with this nite since day ONE! Wes, Blueprint (ya’ll held it down and helped out with the nite every week strictly for the love and I appreciate the fuck out of it). Adam, Alex, Witzky and all the rest of the bartenders that have helped out with the nite. Pos2, LoZone, Rare groove and all the other djs the came out and helped. And all the regulars that showed up every week and partied with us. Shits been a blast and I expect tonight to be no different. Hope to see some of ya’ll (who can) out!

Blueprint Announces New Instrumental Album & New Blog

It will be a little longer before Blueprint’s next Rhymesayer album “Adventures in Counter-Culture” hits stores. In the meantime, the Columbus rapper/producer has a couple things to hold his fans over. Print is taking pre-orders for a limited-edition instrumental album that will be availble exclusively on www.weightless.net called “Sign Language”.

Here is an MP3 from “Sign Language”:

MP3 :Blueprint-Numb

In case you miss Prints’ words & opinions often heard in his raps, fear not. Print has also just launched a new blog called More Music Less Bullshit.

After the jump it gets uncomfortable and self-indulgent.
